Heat assistance program

The Home Energy Assistance Target (HEAT) Program assists low-income households with energy costs. Households may apply for a one-time benefit per year. HEAT applications will be accepted Oct 1st through September 30th.

The CRISIS Program can provide additional assistance with your utility bills if you have a shut-off notice and meet State & Federal CRISIS guidelines.

Utility Crisis Program

If you have a shutoff notice from your electric or gas utility, you may qualify for the Utility Crisis Program.

All applications for crisis funding, or any HEAT applications treated as a crisis situation (including clients with a shutoff notice), must comply with State and Federal Crisis guidelines.

A crisis is defined as: when a household receives a 48-hour shutoff notice, or is within 10% of depleting deliverable fuel and faces sudden or unexpected event beyond their control resulting in the inability to pay household heating costs.
